    Suits and Your Build - Emphasize or "Genericize"?



    This is a copy of the post I placed on the "other" forum. Just casting a wider net for answers.


    Looking at different advice on suits and fit, there seems to be two seperate approaches. I am a fairly large, athletic guy. 6'2" 220, at least a 48 long jacket, 34 at the waist. Some "best suits for your size" advice banks give advice geared towards flattering that kind of physique and emphasizing it as a strong point.


    Others seem to go the exact opposite and talk about ways to balance your top with your bottom, draw attention AWAY from your chest and V taper, and generally make you blend into less noticeable, more normal propotions.


    I'm just curious what is everyones opinion on both?


    I think I would prefer to go with a suit cut that shows off my build, however I also don't want to look Johhny Bravo cartoonish.

    You've got a giant upper body. Similar dimensions here, minus the 'athletic' and a couple pounds--44R for me usually, 36 at the waist. For me, I like to emphasize my broad shoulders in jackets and that's what I've done with my suit, too.

      Damn. I'm 210lbs 6'1" and I usually wear a 42L jacket and I'm 34" at the waist.


      Without a picture to go on, I'm guessing people notice your V build in almost everything you wear. The suit should also fit your body well; I would want to show off my that build. You may want to stay away from the large/bold plaids. Pinstripes may work well. Not sure how your shoulders are but you may only need minimal shoulder pads.

      My Measurements: 6' 1" height, 35" sleeves, 41-42" chest/jacket, 35" waist, 34" inseam, 11.5D/EEE shoes, 200 lbs

        Agree with Yacko - I'm 210, 6'0, 48 jacket and down to 36 waist - I find large/bold patterns can make proportions seem kind of crazy. Small pinstripe patterns, lighter patterns, solids look good. Certainly don't need bulky shoulder pads, but nothing wrong with making your jacket fit nice and close on the sides.

          Agreeing with Mikehc here. I think your build is too accentuated and would make bold patterns look awkward, but the stripes, bengal, thin, candy even may work. I am curious what horizontal stripes might look like on you. But if your built well capitalize on it, go with something that flatters what youve worked for. the V is what most men want to accomplish to show off to the ladies or in my case the wife. Go for the V, no need to look like the masses
